The way I see it is the roads are full of idiots, whether in a car or van or bus or truck, whether a cyclist or a pedestrian. Yes, the motorist drive the the most lethal out them all, no doubt about that. But I think it's all about the person not just 'car drivers'. In Edinburgh I see god awful drivers on phones, no lights, no indicators, speeding all over the place. Then cyclists on pavements, red light jumping, going the wrong way down a one way street. A cyclist I almost hit with my car a few months ago rode out a park, no lights, one arm holding a large bit of wood. I slammed the brakes on blaring my horn, he did a wobbly u-turn about a foot in front of me to go back the other way and almost got twated by a large flat bed truck and rode off the wrong way down the street. And pedestrians walking over roads texting, Facebooking, or the old couple crossing a very busy double lane road yesterday with all their shopping when the pedestrian crossing was 10 feet away.
I'm not defending any one them, but it ain't all about 'bad drivers'. Its all about people in general just being bloody stupid.
